I'll be returning to the upcoming elections for New Brighton anon, but one thing that you should remember about all the candidates:
No one running is talking about cutting essential services, such as police and fire protection. And it's disingenuous for Mayor Larson to take credit for their performance. Our public safety personnel in New Brighton would perform admirably no matter who sits in the mayor's chair.
The question in this election is not about how the city spends the taxpayer's money on essential services. The question is how the current administration spent the taxpayer's money on other things. The mayor would prefer that you not think about that.
